Asthma Home > Flovent HFA 220 mcg Inhaler
If you have asthma, your healthcare provider may recommend Flovent® HFA (fluticasone HFA) to help prevent asthma attacks.
The medication is available by prescription only and comes in an inhaler that is available in three strengths:
- Flovent HFA 44 mcg inhaler -- containing 120 inhalations, with 44 mcg per inhalation
- Flovent HFA 110 mcg inhaler -- containing 120 inhalations, with 110 mcg per inhalation
- Flovent HFA 220 mcg inhaler -- containing 120 inhalations, with 220 mcg per inhalation.
For the treatment of asthma in children ages 4 to 11, the recommended Flovent dose is two inhalations of Flovent HFA 44 mcg twice daily.
For adults and adolescents at least 12 years old, the recommended dosage varies, depending upon what type of asthma medications were previously taken. For example, people who were previously taking an oral steroid usually start with two inhalations of the Flovent HFA 220 mcg inhaler twice a day.
